Transcript of Generalizations vs Stereotypes

Definition: Stereotype
- A generalization is a broad statement about something a group has in common.

- They can be faulty or valid based on whether or not they are supported by facts.
What is a stereotype?
- Stereotypes are qualities assigned to groups of people related to their race, nationality and sexual orientation, to name a few.
Examples of Valid Generalizations vs Stereotypes
Think About a Time That a Stereotype was attributed to you...
- Record it on the back of your notes.
Generalizations vs Stereotypes
- When you stereotype someone you assume that because they are from a certain background they have certain qualities.
Generalization: Most elementary school teachers are women.
- This can be proven by the fact only 17% of elementary teachers are male.
Stereotype: You are an elementary school teacher so YOU MUST be a woman.

- This is untrue because 17% of elementary teachers are indeed men.
- Those who are comfortable share out.
Look at your graphic organizer from yesterday...
1. Circle all the times you stereotyped or generalized the families in the picture.
Examples I Heard Yesterday...
- That's how Asian live.
- They're REAL Mexicans.
- Student: "They're Asian"
Student: "That's mean."
- They're rich.
- They're poor.
- They don't look poor.
- These people look homeless.
- I know they're rich because they dress nice.
